Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Frigga is a young woman who was raped by a stranger as a child. Suffering from shock from this incident, she becomes a mute. One day, she heads to town to visit a highly qualified doctor about her condition. However, she misses the bus. A seemingly nice gentleman offers her a ride into town and has dinner with her, but she is drugged and is intentionally hooked onto heroine in order for the man to control her. She is forced to work in his brothel, but is given Mondays off, and she is given heroine daily, as to keep her coming back to the brothel for a supply. The pimp also forges a letter that is sent to her parents, which cruelly explains away her disappearance as abandonment. Her parents kill themselves in grief. After learning of her parents death, Frigga uses her Mondays off in order to train in martial arts, sharp-shooting, and driving, in order for her to take revenge on those who have wronged her.
The first film, ever, to be banned in Sweden!

More Movie Taglines:
- The first film, ever, to be banned in Sweden!
- Den första svenska film som någonsin blivit totalförbjuden av censuren.
- The movie that has no limits of evil!
- First they took her speech...then her sight...When they were finished she used what was left of her for her own frightening kind of REVENGE!
- Bo Arne Vibenius made this film to cover up the financial failure of his first film. His intention was to create "a commercial-as-hell crap-film". The actors had a clause in their contracts to ensure that they would not reveal who the director of the film really was.
Swedish censorship banned the film in April 4, 1973. Despite the tag line, this is not the first Swedish film to be banned in Sweden, that was TrÃ¤dgÃ¥rdsmÃ¤staren.
Christina Lindberg had no driver's licence, but does her own driving, with a policeman lying on the car floor, operating the shift.
A long standing rumor surrounding the film was that a real corpse was used for the scene where Madeleine's eye is taken out with a scalpel. In a March 2006 interview, Christina Lindberg confirmed this. The body was of a young girl who had committed suicide. Makeup was added to the eye, and the shot was filmed in the hospital that had received the body.
During pre-production, Christina Lindberg was doing some shotgun-training outdoors and was arrested when bystanders thought she was shooting at them.
